When I put a cd or dvd in the drive computer does not recognise there is a drive at all it is an acer 5315


consider to replace your dvd rom, because maybe it caused the dvd or cd cant read the cd or your dvd, maybe it caused the optic (head) of your optical drive is weak because of thr dust or dirty, before you replace your optical drive you can try to clean the optic using dvd or cd cleaner

Hi my acer aspire 5315 will not boot up, i turn it on i get nothing but the little cursor in the top right hand corner...can anyone help please thank u in advance


That is probably because some important boot files are missing. What you can try is to take out the hard drive and move it to another acer aspire 5315 computer. To take out the hard drive, remove ALL electrical components (power cable, battery, etc.), open the computer's hard drive bay, and take it out VERY carefully. Make sure you do not cut the cables. That could damage the hard drive. Then, you remove the hard drive on the other acer aspire 5315 computer using the same instructions above. Then, you can identify the missing boot files (they will be in a hidden drive called System Reserved), copy them onto your computer's hidden System Reserved drive (if it's missing you'll have to create one manually), and put it back in the other acer aspire 5315 computer. Make sure that you put the wires where they were when you removed them, otherwise the hard drive might not work. Then, try turning on the computer again.

My accer 5115 laptop wont boot up it shows the green light when i plug in the power cord and wen I go to turn it on both lights light up and then go off. please help I have put in a new hard drive and it...


Use the OS CD/DVD to boot again and repair the OS. Next get the appropriate drivers compatible for vista from this site and install them on your laptop for it to function properly:

Acer aspire 5315 notebook i put a new hardrive in my computer what do i do next to get it working afriend tried to down load windows7 but nothing is happening


Hello John,

Please confirm whether this new Hard drive is a secondary Harddrive, or this is the Primary (only) HARDDRIVE.
If it is secondary then it should work automatically as soon as you connected it through the USB Channel.
If it is primary, then after connecting the HDD, You need to put the Auto installable CD/DVD of windows 7 in the CD rom. It should detect the CD/DVD and startinstalling the windows 7.
Just follow the steps which comes your screen and it will be done.

WIth regards

Cd drive not working


Most likely solution? Remove the drive and replace it with another one. Sounds like it's died physically.

You can call Acer Support to order just this part @ 866-695-2237

If this unit is still under warranty, then you need to get it looked at for free by Acer. One starting point is to go to the Web:

http://secure2.tx.acer.com/FixMyAcer3/FixMyAcer.aspx

Another would be to contact whoever SOLD you this unit. Be aware that most factory hardware warranties are good for one year, and are not transferable, so if you bought it used, there's likely no warranty for you.

Finally, you could take your laptop to a reputable computer repair shop and ask them about replacing the drive or at least ordering one for you. I'm not personally familiar with this model, but many of the manufacturers are making the replacement of the optical drive an easy end-user fix.

Good Luck, Jim

Have an Acer 5315. Used the system's restore


Disconnect any external devices, plug in your power to a A/C outlet, re-install the restoration disk and start over.
Check your BIOS again to make sure the CD is the first boot drive. You may not be saving the BIOS change or the restore disk may not be bootable.
You can check the restore disk on any PC or laptop.
Also you may have a restoration partation on the hard disk. Get you docs. and check.

Cd/dvd drive problem


Try with another brand of disk; the Matsushita UJ870 drive of our 5315 burn my Sony CD's but not my Philips CD's (my Compaq V2617LA with an older Matsushita UJ840 drive has burned Phillips CD's in the last two monts)... Remember: CD and DVD lassers are different. I think because of that, i haven't see problems with Sony, Philips and Samsung DVD's... only with CD's...
